This half-day event presented by the Central South Regional Stroke Network, will be of interest to SLP's, PT's, OT's, their assistants and other stroke care providers interested in cognitive rehab. Participants will have the opportunity to:
Summarize current evidence of cognitive impairments in individuals with stroke and evidence-based rehabilitation practices for this population.
Critique their own therapy practice to determine if they are using appropriate instructional methods.
Discuss a framework for intervention and apply this framework to clinical examples.
